My doctor told me that I might have asthma, since I am in the military this is a frightening idea. I've been researching symptoms (mostly online) and have not seen the symptom that sent me to the pulmonoligist in the first place (passing out). Is this a symptom of asthma or something else I can ask my doctor to check for instead?

What precedes the passing out? Is there a lot of coughing beforehand? I have cough variant asthma and sometimes I cough so long I can't inhale. That causes me to black out briefly.
